As part of our weekly “Meet the Staff” series we’ll be introducing you to a new staff member each Monday who helps create learning through the power of play at KidsQuest Children’s Museum. This week we introduce you to the Museum’s Reservation Coordinator, Andi Koller. She has been with KidsQuest for four years!

Why do you work at KidsQuest? I originally came to KidsQuest in anticipation of the big move and I have stayed for the rewarding work we do promoting access for kids and families in the community.

What school did you go to/are you going to? I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Art History and History.

Favorite KQ Exhibit or Activity: Play with Paint! (although I am a little biased)

Kids & Pets: I rescued Chloe, my very feisty rat terrier, when I moved up here and haven’t looked back.

Favorite Food: In-N-Out Burger

Favorite Hobby: I love to travel and plan at least one big trip every year.

Fun Fact about you: Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a paleontologist. While that dream did not pan out, I do still get to share my passion through dinosaur-themed activities and programs in the Museum!
